With a sweet cherry filling, a creamy coconut layer, a soft chocolate sponge and a rich ganache drip, my version of the famous Black Forest Cake is the dessert your next dinner party, festive event or birthday celebration needs. It's vegan and easy to make, and can easily be made gluten free for your Coeliac friends. All of the elements can be made in advance and the cake and ganache can be frozen, making it stress-free as well as delightfully delicious!

Vegan Raspberry Turnovers

Vegan Raspberry Turnovers

Vegan Raspberry Turnovers

  • 20 ' Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
It's always exciting to create a recipe that includes vegan pastry, especially when it tastes as good as this one does! Making your own pastry does require a time commitment, but it's absolutely worth it and tastes just as good as the non-vegan versions you used to enjoy. This recipe uses my chocolate croissant pastry, but is filled with a sour raspberry filling and topped with a lemon glaze. I like to make a batch of these and freeze them for when last minute friends come by, or serve them for a lavish morning tea for vegans and non-vegans alike. 

Spirulina and Edamame Green Bowl

Spirulina and Edamame Green Bowl

  • 45 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
As a vegan cook, you can never have too many salad, veggie or buddha bowl recipes, especially if you make a lot of your own meals or enjoy entertaining. My Spirulina and Edamame Green Bowl is packed with all sorts of healthy goodies, and feel free to experiment with additions of your own. If you can't find spirulina noodles, use another type of noodle like vermicelli or udon. 

Vegan Apple Pies

Vegan Apple Pies

Vegan Apple Pies

  • 1 h Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
Apple pie is one of those classic, hearty and comforting desserts that often takes me back to a particular time, place or memory. It's so yummy when served warm with a scoop of ice-cream, and there's not reason vegans have to miss out! My recipe is easy to follow and makes four individual pies or one small share pie, and uses the technique I read about years ago (I wish I remember where!) of microwaving the apple filling prior to cooking the pie in the oven, giving the apple an extra chance to cook through and leaving you with a soft filling and crunchy crust. It's another one of my recipes that also freezes well, so make a batch before a dinner party and reheat in the oven just before your lucky guests arrive! 

Kelp Noodle and Papaya Salad with Peanut Dressing

Kelp Noodle and Papaya Salad with Peanut Dressing

Kelp Noodle and Papaya Salad with Peanut Dressing

  • 40 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
This is one of my FAVOURITE salad recipes, because it combines all of my must-have elements: it's healthy, crunchy, packed full of flavour and vegan. If you don't have kelp noodles you can substitute them for vermicelli, but I'd highly recommending trying to get your hands on some as they provide such a lovely texture to this crowd-pleaser. Make a big batch and enjoy it throughout the week, and definitely serve it at your next dinner party with some grilled tofu, smashed avocado and sweet potato fries. Yum!

Last Minute Vegan Curry

Last Minute Vegan Curry

Last Minute Vegan Curry

  • 20 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
I'll get straight to the point. This is a recipe for the day you come home late from work, starving, not sure what to make and with little time to make it. It uses spices you probably already have, pantry items most vegans always have on hand, and veggies that come fresh or frozen. The beauty of this recipe is that most of the ingredients can spices can be substituted for what you do have (and if you have fresh garlic and ginger, even better!), as long as you stick with the general recipe structure. Perfect for a cozy night in!

Tomato and Black Bean Soup

Tomato and Black Bean Soup

Tomato and Black Bean Soup

I'm always inspired to create new soup recipes as the weather gets cooler, but honestly, I could eat this soup all year round. As someone who loves hearty food, I eat soup for two reasons: firstly, to feel warm and full, and secondly, because it provides a solid excuse to eat toast. This ticks both boxes, and is made using delicious black beans, veggies and spices. Make a big batch and store it in the fridge, and have your sourdough ready. 

Miso and Brown Rice Balls

Miso and Brown Rice Balls

Miso and Brown Rice Balls

  • 01 h 35 ' Prep. Time
  • 20 Serves

Crunchy, tangy and full of protein, my Miso and Brown Rice Balls are the perfect freezer snack that can be added to almost any veggie base. Most of the ingredients will probably already be in your pantry, and once you buy a packet of miso paste you’ll find yourself using it in everything from salad dressings to stir-fries. Don’t be afraid to throw in your own combination of spices, too!

Herb Stuffed Pumpkin

  • 30 ' Prep. Time
  • 2 Serves
Pumpkin is a versatile vegetable for a vegan, providing a creamy base for dairy free cheese sauce, a hearty addition to pump up a grain salad, or as the main ingredient in a party pleasing main. This recipe is a lovely one for a dinner party, and can be made as outlined below, or in mini-portions to please a crowd. You can stuff it with anything you like, top with vegan cheese or be bold by making it with sweet potato instead!

Apple Pastry Puffs

Apple Pastry Puffs

Apple Pastry Puffs

  • 04 h Prep. Time
  • 10 Serves
I love a good mini-pastry, for breakfast, dessert, as a snack, or for pretty much any meal quite frankly. This is a time consuming but easy recipe for a basic vegan puff pastry, with an apple filling that can be made without or without any added sugar. It's made with plenty of vegan butter and isn't so much a healthy treat, but if you avoid adding sugar to the filling it's a better option than many of the store-bought desserts. Feel free to experiment with fillings based on what you have handy! 

Crunchy Corn Fritters

Crunchy Corn Fritters

  • 10 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
Another day, another vegan breakfast! Corn fritters used to be my go-to order at breakfast cafes, but it's tricky finding a place that does them without eggs, and many even have added cheese and sour cream to this crunchy delight. As regular readers know, I've recently committed to creating a vegan breakfast menu, with versions of my favourite non-vegan snacks that taste as good as the real thing (maybe even better, but let's not brag). Serve these with a tangy relish, vegan sour cream or heap of smashed avocado!

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Mince

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Mince

Stuffed Sweet Potatoes with Walnut Mince

  • 15 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
Sweet potatoes are so versatile, perfect for fries, curries, salads and even brownies! This recipe is a healthy twist on stuffed potatoes, which are usually full of greasy meat, thick sour cream and cheese, and are very heavy. It's a great option if you enjoy hearty meals but don't want to fill up on breads and fried food, and is packed with protein and plenty of other good stuff. You can even make a big batch of mince and use it on sandwiches and pasta, too!

Vegan Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissants)

  • 5 h Prep. Time
  • 16 Serves
Before I was a vegan I had a few lovely pastry recipes that I never expected to use again, and I pretty much gave up on enjoying store bough pastries as well. It wasn't until recently that I decided to attempt a vegan version of my favourite pastry, the pain au chocolat, which I'm excited to report turned out magnificently! This recipe is wonderfully easy to make but does take time and patience, and should definitely be enjoyed in moderation. Feel free to experiment with different types of chocolate, jams or fruit, too! 

Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

Chocolate Self-saucing Pudding

  • 15 ' Prep. Time
  • 4 Serves
One of the most common misconceptions about plant based food is that it never tastes as good as 'normal' food, and is made almost entirely of tofu and air. Anyone who has tasted well made vegan food knows this is so wrong, particularly when it comes to dessert. When you eat a non-vegan cake, are you enjoying it because you can taste the eggs and milk? Of course not! Not only are vegan desserts delicious and often even better than their non-vegan counterparts, they're cheaper and quicker to make. 

Easy Vegan Gnocchi with Basil and Mushrooms

Easy Vegan Gnocchi with Basil and Mushrooms

  • 45 ' Prep. Time
  • 2 Serves
Gnocchi is surprisingly easy to make, given how delicious and mysterious is. I mean, it's sort of like pasta, but made from potatoes, but tastes like a delicious pillow of savoury goodness. It's confusing. My vegan version is cheap to prepare, easy to make and can be frozen until ready for use. This recipe includes a list of the veggies I like to have with gnocchi, but feel free to serve it with vegan cheese, pesto, or anything you have on hand. Yum!
